Erin Wenig

I’m Erin, a senior at The University of Cincinnati College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning (DAAP).
In my time at DAAP I have had nearly two years of work experience over five internships including experiences in medical device design at Ethicon, Inc. and design research at The University of Cincinnati Medical Center and Stuart Karten Design. Through these internships I was able to discover my love of design research and the thrill of gathering information and making new connections with data.

Right now I am applying everything I’ve learned both through my work experiences and my studios at DAAP to my senior capstone project. My capstone is centered on the development of a hybrid control system and headset for assistive robotic arms that combines electroencephalography (EEG) and head motion tracking.

I first decided to pursue an Industrial Design degree because it sounded really fun! I’m glad I chose design because it allowed to learn and explore topics that I was interested in as well as provided the opportunity to gain valuable work experiences.

Outside of studio I am interested in staying caffeinated, dystopian futuristic fiction, human anatomy, and volunteering for FIRST Robotics.
